    I've been annoyed by at least one of these every day and it seems to be getting more frequent. Maybe it's just me getting older but I think it's just more drivers not knowing the rules of the road. Either way.... most of these are illegal.

    1. driving with high beams on
    2. not using blinker
    3. trucks going slow up hill in left lane
    4. people afraid to pass trucks therefore slowing both lanes
    5. people merging onto highway at 30mph
    6. not clearing snow from roof (oblivious, lazy or JDGAF)
    7. checking phone resulting in weaving or going slow
    8. not turning right on red when there is no "no turn on red" sign
    9. standing at 4way stop sign until after all others stop or waving everyone through
    10. seat too reclined or face literally 2 inches from the steering wheel
    11. driver listening to music on headphones - you can't hear anything else
    12. parking on the lines taking up more than one spot

    Drivers with their damn sweatshirt hoods on. How do you have any peripheral vision?! I guess a guy has to keep his gangsta image strong while driving his mom's Hyundai

    Another one is when people stop 30ft short of traffic in front of them and then creep 1-2ft every couple seconds. My car is stick so I end up looking like the douche because I refuse to put my car in gear and add wear to my clutch so I can creep up with them.

    Dude you fucking nailed all of these. I drive for a living and hate that no one uses their blinkers, high beams, and texting I wish it was legal to push people off the road.

    I'm an enthusiast and I love driving...but once everyone has self-driving cars this world will be a better place. Just too many self-absorbed dummies out there.

    One of the problems with headlights now a days is that these new cars headlights are so damn bright on low beams. It even has got me sometimes. Jeeps low beams are ridiculous bright

    our 2014 F150 gets flashed all the time, I wish both High and low beams could work together to flash people back.

    lack of turn signals, being on the phone, and people almost coming to a stop before making a turn are probably my top three.

    I hate it when someone pulls right out in front of me. Goes less than 1/4 mile and then turns off. :curls:

    1. Mild annoyance
    2. not using blinker doesn't bother me at all. I don't trust that anyone is using it correctly anyway, I'm certainly not going to assume because you have your blinker on, that you are turning when I expect you to. So I have to stop/slow down/ wait for you to do your thing with or without the blinker. And since this is about proper driving, we are all keeping a safe distance that I won't rear end you when you turn without a blinker, but your brake lights indicated to me that you were thinking of doing something like that anyway which again really negates the needs for the blinker.
    3. trucks going slow is a problem
    4. yup, definitely annoying
    5. super f*ing annoying. People can't merge at all....or yield without stopping for that matter.
    6. sure
    7. scary
    8. eh, there's no requirement that you here to turn on red.
    9. I hate it more when someone that clearly got to the intersection before me, waits for me to go....you got there first and are making us both look bad!
    10. I'm not concerned about the seating positions of ppl in other cars.
    11. how do you know their music isn't turned down low in those headphones. You can hear a lot more with ear plugs in than you can with your car's stereo turned all the way up.
    12. these people definitely suck.

    Pretty decent list tho having deaf people in my family who have unrestricted DLs I'm less concerned with number 11.

    I'll add something unique to my area (to my knowledge at least) is people turning on their emergency flashers at the first sight of rain, snow or anything else while still driving the speedlimit or higher and no sight restriction such as fog or smoke. It's massively annoying (and has no legal requirement) to be in a sea of vehicles in light rain at night with yellow FUCKING flashers going as far as the eye can see.

    Oh and I'd like to add people who drive reckless including those driving significantly above or below the posted limit without due weather conditions.

    Damn straight...but wait what bout me?

    Haha, yup. Even more annoying when they could have waiting .05 seconds and turned out behind you since there is literally no one behind you.
